Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Hand Navigation System (HNS)

Atilla can be quite the explorer when she is in the mood. Admittedly she sometimes gets a little helping hand from me, but it is all under her instructions. 

When sat on my hand she indicates where she wants to go & I lower or raise her to her destination. Occasionally she changes her mind or maybe I interpret the instruction wrongly & she wants to return to the starting position but more often than not, she will continue indicating where she wants to go until she reaches the target destination.  Any wrong turns or not acting quick enough result in a nasty nip to my finger tip, otherwise I get little squeezes to encourage me.

She has been the first to explore the inside of the folding cage.  She was also the first to eat seed from that cage resulting in Bezukhov following her in to join her, comfortable in the knowledge that if the leader is eating there, then it must be safe.

Atilla also likes to check the toys I hang from the bottom of the folding cage (a storage place!)

If I leave a favoured toy, perch or swing on the box under the Manor then Atilla soon knows about it & wants to investigate.  If the toy has a mirror, then she likes to visit on a regular basis.  She has been known to sit at the bottom of the Manor (under normal circumstances the Manor floor is a big NO-NO) waiting for my assistance to visit the Undermanor area.

    That bird is brave beyond belief! I hope the toyboyz realise how lucky they are to have such a role model.
